MUSEO OPENING AT THE CINEMA ART THEATER
Starting on November 30, the Rehoboth Beach Film Society’s Cinema Art Theater will present MUSEO, a witty and unconventional drama about two unlikely criminals who pull off a heist that must be seen to be believed.
Well into their 30s, Juan Nuñez and Benjamín Wilson still can’t seem to finish veterinary school or leave their parents’ homes. On a fateful Christmas Eve, however, they decide it’s finally time to distinguish themselves by executing the most infamous cultural artifacts heist in all of Mexican history. Excusing themselves from the traditional family dinners and seizing on the holiday’s lax security, they loot Mexico’s iconic National Anthropology Museum of its most precious pieces and embark upon a misadventure that will forever change their lives. Inspired by true events, MUSEO is a sardonic cautionary tale that underscores the old adage: you don’t know what you have until you lose it. [2018, Mexico, Runtime: 128 minutes, Not Rated].
“MUSEO is a fun, stylish, singular heist flick that’s about so much more than the theft itself,” writes Gary Goldstein of “The Los Angeles Times.” “Over the course of this rambunctious journey… we’ve had our hearts a little bit stolen, too: the perfect heist,” writes Jessica Kiang of “Variety.com”.
All screenings will take place in the second theater. Screening times are 3:00 pm and 6:00 pm on Friday (Nov 30), 3:00 pm and 6:00 pm on Saturday (Dec 1), 2:00 pm on Sunday (Dec 2), 2:00 pm on Monday (Dec 3), 2:00 pm on Wednesday (Dec 5) and 3:00 pm and 6:00 pm on Thursday (Dec 6).
